International Business Times reports that “the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, could be capable of conducting cyberattacks on the United States, the commander of U.S. Cyber Command warned Tuesday, CNN reported. Adm. Michael Rogers, who oversees the military’s cyberspace operations, made the comments while addressing the Senate Armed Services Committee.”  

“ISIS had ‘harnessed the power of the information arena’ for propaganda of their ideology, Rogers said, according to CNN. They have also used social media platforms to recruit and coordinate their activities, he added.”  

“Rogers said that ISIS could start ‘to view cyber as a weapon system’ to attack critical infrastructure in the U.S.”
